Major Accomplishment!

by on July 15, 2011

This Ride: 63 miles
Month: 511.2 miles
2011: 3,881.2 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 10,000.9 miles

There it is!  10,000 miles ridden in just over a year and a half!  This one feels pretty good.

It started as any usual Friendly Friday Breakfast Ride to Annapolis does.  We had a pretty good turn out with 8 going all the way into Annapolis.  Two of our regulars were missing … they have family vacations at the beach.  It was a nice morning to ride, to breakfast al fresca, and great conversation all around.  At the end of the ride, I announced that I was intending to do 50-60 miles on the day (even though my legs felt wooden).  Carl & Evan rode with me into Glen Burnie where Carl pulled off to go home and Evan turned around near the airport.  I did two clockwise airport loops, made my way back toward the hospital, extending the route so I could get the 63 miles for the day.  I stopped at the hospital to pick up Lori’s car and I’ll pick her up from work later today and head to happy hour in Annapolis with friends.

My legs felt pretty good after about 30 miles … or about when I decided that today would indeed be the day to surpass this arbitrary yet important goal.  I stopped once at about mile 45 for a banana and Gatorade.

I’ve earned the SPP 10,000 mile award now also.  It is a license plate frame (for the car).  I have to wait until some club event to receive it, but it will go on the car as soon as I get it.  A photo will go up also.

On to some errands.
